    If you have not already, change all fluids and filters. Anythings that looks dodgeing, replace if needed. I would go in and make sure everything is conected properly, posibly clean them up.

    With the fluids today you can run a LSX clear over 200,000. Dont worry about it, your engine is just about broken in.
    Like said above i would do a complete tune up and fluid change to include,
    Oil and filter change, use a good synthetic fluid, Tranny and filter. Fuel filter, plugs and wires. Air filter, Clean the maf and throttle body to include the blade. Rear end fluid. Coolant flush, Check brake fluid to make sure its in good condition, also check your P/S fluid. Check brakes "rotors" and "pads". Check over entire car for anything thats leaking or looks out of place.
    Fix any fluid leaks, if you have any.
    Check all radiator hoses and Core hoses.
    Check motor mounts and tranny mount
    Degrease and clean engine and bay.
    Etc etc lol should keep ya busy for a while...
